Print Station used Kavalan PVC-free banner to decorate the new restaurant

Large-format print and design business, Print Station, has used Kavalan PVC-free banner to deck out a vegan restaurant in Windsor.

Having found Kavalan through CMYUK, Print Station’s director Rajan Chonkaria describes CMYUK’s commercial director (materials) Joel Willcock as the company’s “go-to guy for everything” when wanting to bring a solution to life and the best way to do it.

With this in mind, Willcock knew Kavalan’s PVC-free solutions were a perfect fit for Print Station’s project in designing and installing the new interior for the new vegan restaurant.

The restaurant, named Garden of Eden, is owned by Manjinder Bhandal who wanted to dispel some of the negative associations of being vegan and show the world that vegan food is good food. He knew how to create a great menu, but needed help with the aesthetics.

Bhandal wanted a simple design with neutral, earthy colours with a dedicated children’s play area incorporated into the design. Once the initial design had been created, Print Station needed to decide which materials would be the best for the job.

Chonkaria and the team opted for Kavalan Gecko 320 GB, a greyback wallcovering material for the interiors. This was the first time the team had used Kavalan banners and Chonkaria describes it being “like a breath of fresh air” once the graphics had been installed.

The Garden of Eden team agreed and said the graphics fit nicely with their ethos.

Print Station used a JETRIX flatbed LED printer to print onto the Kavalan and elsewhere in-house the company also runs a JETRIX 3.2m roll-to-roll, a Zund digital cutter, and a CNC router.

What’s more, the opening of the restaurant resulted in another project for Print Station when a guest on learning about the process and material used, decided she wanted her daughter’s bedroom wallpapered with Kavalan. 

“It's going to open a lot of doors for us, because now we can approach tenders in a different way and say, we want to introduce you to this product. That way it's beneficial for us and it's going to be beneficial for the customer as well,” comments Chonkaria.
